Not the most stable of apps. Keeps crashing and is frequently unable to search today's edition. Can't search section or particular articles. Refuses to load comments at all. Does not let making a comment from the phone. Formatting varies from phone to smartphone to desktop. All of these have nothing to do with the paper ver again. The find engine is really poor. I only gave it three stars because of the quality of the journalism. Obtain better code writers, honestly!
There are so a lot of issues that I don't even know where to start. I will focus on only one: the size of the fonts is large and there are no ways of controlling it. As as I've read here, I'm not the only one who's encountering it. However, after contacting the Times team, I was left with a bitter taste: apparently, we are not enough people with this problem, so there are no chances of correction, even if we pay for the content. Such a shame!
The application displays headlines and articles quite well. The comment and puzzles functionality is poor. If you write a comment and someone replies you have to plough through pages of comments to search the reply. The functionality of the crosswords is primary as you cant ask for a tip for a single letter and for a coloured red or green letter as you enter it.
I have a fresh Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 which runs Android device 9 The application does not display correctly on the tablet. Seems to be working as for a phone. In landscape mode only uses a 1/4 of the screen. In portrait mode uses a small under 1/2 just as you would expect a phone application to work. Is OK on my much older Tab S rated based on content - subtracted 2 stars because of above
The application is amazing as well as the content. However, for some reason, when im trying to to press "done" at "Stay up to date" page it returns me back and asking me to fulfil my data again. It would be fine, but I want I could look through the comments. Unfortunately, as far as im not logged in, I can't do it.
Unbelievable journalism mediocre app. I read The Times daily on my commute which is fine in the train but articles only begin sparadically when on the Tube or sometimes not at all. However if I do manage to click an article that will begin I can scroll left and right to access an article that previously was blank. I'd really just like to download the whole paper in the morning via WiFi and be able to access whatever article I wanted whenever including seeing images and videos.
Considering the content needs to be paid for, they have got a nerve prodicing such a shoddy app. My key gripes are bugs within the comments section. i cant be bothered to desvribe them all but the key one is when you tap on a comment you created that has a reply, the application takes you to the online version, to which you are not logged in, and then crashes with an error message. i cant zoom into the cartoon and therefore cant read it and it updates everytime i begin it leaving a white screen for ages.
This is the second time in four days that the application has failed to update. The comments section still judders when trying to read it. l expect better than this. The recent modernize appears to have zeroed the comments section for all articles. Checking the latest six days where all the comments have disappeared completely.
I cannot unsuscribe! My acc cannot be eliminated on the app, so that I have to carry on paying to read articlesevery week even though I don't intend to! That's unfair! There isn't a method to unsuscribe on the application and the phone number cannot be called from my country...
Not updating. Comments heading appears to have been tampered with so now nothing works! Email to Times says all OK! Have tried and tried to print dining card- total failure. I use several restaurant offers and this is the only one that refuses to work!
I have been very disappointed by this aop in recents weeks. it no longer appears to modernize itself each day. in faqs it is suggested yiu just pull it to updste but thus doesn't work fir me. instead I obtain a notice ' unable to update'. I have had to resort to uninstalling it and reinstalling it on a number of occasions. i have just finished doing this in order to move on from Sunday. Prior to Sunday it hadn't updated since latest Thursday. Verry annoying!
Given I pay a lot of cash for this app, really disappointing. It doesn't modernize content in the background, so completely negating the value of an app: if I'm already online, I can browse The Times website, right!? Also, on a patchy internet connection content doesnt display as it tries to refresh content, but can't. Only method to then create it work is aeroplane mode.. I obtain the sense it was tested in lab conditions, not the true world.
It still has cut-off photographs and if it has league tables for sports or listed share prices like the paper version, I have yet to search them. My Android device 10" smartphone does not obtain as much info as my wife's iPad ver so when she says there's a cruise she would like I can't always search it. A mixed blessing! I like, and participate in, the comments.
The comments section frequently lets the application down. It's very simple to reprt comments accidentally. There was a brief time when you were asked to confirm reporting, but that seems to have disappeared. Other issues contain the comments section shaking up and down violently, and text editing not responding as required. Two examples of this are words being completely changed when trying to insert a letter, and auto-correct adding part of the correction to the incorrect one, rather than changing it.
Still broken, have to reload the application 4 times to see any content. Absolute junk. Using the very recent ver on Android. The low quality ads in every article spoil the experience too. I already pay for this application every month, why do I need this?
DO NOT take out the trial subscription to this application unless you thoroughly intend to carry on with it thereafter. Cancelling it is an absolute nightmare, believe me. It can only be done via telephone and the on keep period is utterly ridiculous. You have been warned! On top of that, the application itself isn't very amazing at all. Keeps crashing endlessly and scrolling is not in the least bit smooth. Dreadful experience. ZERO STARS!!!
Overall a very satisfying experience, but I have noticed recently that the application will say "your edition has been updated" and nothing will load except a blank page. The only method to fix this has been to reset the application via task manager, but today I did this and now obtain a "Something went wrong" notification and no content. I am reinstalling to see if this fixes the problem but from Top Critical review on this page it seems to be an problem shared by other users. e: reinstall fixed the problem for now.
The official application of The Times & The Sunday Times is beautiful, smooth, and a pleasure to read! Thank you, application developers for The Times, and please hold up the amazing work! The Law content subject is great, and I hope to see even more amazing content and service in the future!
The application is overall very very good. It has a easy to use interface, tasteful ad placement and updates quick when fresh articles come out. I'm giving it four stars because when I'm in the comments section and someone is typing their comment (which cam be frequent amongst newly written articles on hot topics), the application has an unfortunate tendency to begin glitching out, making it harder to use when trying to view comments.
Handy app, but sometimes glitchy. Comments sometimes won't load, or allow you post - and something very strange happens if you wish to edit a comment you're writing by adding some text anywhere but the end: the cursor will move elsewhere, mid word, and then be confused by predictive text and begin deleting words. I have this problem with no other app on the phone, and it's very irritating...
For about the latest month everytime the application is opened it insists that the edition has been updated. This means there is a delay to being able yo read anything when it is girst opened. Also if you have no connectivity, ie when on the tube, the application becomes unusable as all you see is the headlines and the artivles fail to load. Previously it all worked fine, not sure why you created this change but please revert!
frustrating. most of the sections work, until they don't load and you have to reinstall. The crossword doesn't come preloaded so you have to be online to access it. Every time you reopen it. Should be simple to fix (the ipad ver works fine) but they haven't.
It is amazing to be able to exptess views and read the comments from other people on subjects published in the paper. There appears to be one problem.Whenever someone replies to a comment I have created the Ap refuses to let me to answer and tells me there is something wrong with my connection. Can be very frustrating.
Well Mmm, downloaded as got free month trial, but no changes from when I tried 2 years ago. Content on the phone has more than on the smartphone version, despite downloading at the same time. Very thin on content, stories, less and not even in the same order. Definitely cancel trial.
